Check in.

Okay, so once a week I want to do a check in and tell you how it's going.
Generally, the blog will just be a visual look at our world on foot but I also want to plug great business' that support what we do and I want to share how it goes for a mama and her 6 year old. AND! I want to hear from you!  Do you bike everywhere?  Do you have a little commitment of your own to your community?  It doesn't have to be giving up your keys or even have anything to do with traveling.  Are you committing to your community and DOING something to help?  Being local takes so many forms.  Please share how you care.

We just finished our first week!  YAY!  On our walk home from the Y tonight, Leah was skipping and sang, "We get to walk for a year, we get to walk for a year."  How amazing is that.  I love my little rose bud.  

Seems like the weather is on our side, it's been so mild except on my bike ride to Leah's school this morning  I considered that my fingers could fall off.  Quickly the temps increased and my heart was so warmed by our awesome kindergarten teacher that planned to walk to our downtown field trip.  19 little kids walking hand in hand for a mile without giving it a second thought.  I'm so inspired:)

  1. not sure if this is where you want folks to comment. but here goes anyway!
    you know i love what this is about and you have definitely inspired me to do more. we already do a lot to keep our carbon footprints small(er), but after reading your blog, i have decided to *compact* for another year. i did this a few years ago and it was great. but like many things, once we fall off the wagon, it's that much harder to get back on. read about the basic concept here:
    or google *the compact group* for more info. it does take some effort but it's really fun once you re-train your brain to buy only used items (except safety and health items). it's like a scavenger hunt that never ends.
    join me (if you dare), starting jan 1, 2012, to buy only pre-loved/gently used for as long as you can, and as often as you can.
    (FYI, the downtown market, next to amazing savings, has a little bit of everything, mostly used).
